Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietaLelllls and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region.
To help get beneath the surface, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail hosts a fun event to explore and discover great red wines of Leelanau Peninsula. The Hunt for the Reds of October takes place weekdays (Monday through Friday) during the month of October. Every weekday during the month of October, your ticket gets you a complimentary pour at each of the 21 participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and many more.
$20 per person: includes signature wine glass, a complimentary red wine pour at each winery and a $5 donation to the American Red Cross. Great wine for a great cause — it doesn’t get better than that!
